A Blogging Break

Some call it blogging suicide. I'm choosing to view it as an opportunity for Christ to fill me up so I can continue to pour out.

In the words of the lovely Holley Gerth: "Jesus promises us 'living water' that fills us up with what we need to offer others (John 7:38). We can always go to him—not just in the times when we can get away for a significant time but also moment-to-moment."

There are also birthdays to celebrate, a valentine to kiss and a son to welcome home. Oh, how I have joy-filled moments ahead of me in the coming weeks. I intend to savor each and every one.

Below are recent images shared on my blog Facebook page to leave you with for now. I will remain semi-active on the page during my blogging break if you want to join me there.

Do you see a theme in the images? The theme I see . . . God has everything we need no matter the need. Trust in Him. He is faithful.

You make my life richer, friends. Thank you!

I will return mid-March.

  1. Love you girl! I will be praying for those joy-filled moments to contain God's loving touch in everyone. I am really loving Isaiah 26:3 above-a perfect peace in Christ. Yes and amen! That is exactly what I have been striving for this year. Can't wait to hear about all the fun! Hugs and see you around! :)

  2. Will miss ya, friend! (Sniff, sniff)

    Enjoy every minute of being unplugged. And not to worry, this isn't blogging suicide ... It's blogging sanity!

  3. You're so good! Whenever I take a blogging break...I just stop! LOL (I'm on one now!) It is so nice that you let us know. I know that this time will be a blessing for you as you connect with family and enjoy special moments!

    Love you Beth!

    All for Him, Joan

  4. Have a blessed time with your family!

  5. So excited for you to spend this time with your family. Your images here are gorgeous!

  6. Lovely images, Beth! I especially like that last one! I'm so thankful for this time of rich family fellowship that you are heading into. God has prepared you, even for this. I will be praying for your beautiful witness of Him to shine through. Love you, blessings!

  7. Your pictures are so pretty, Beth! Enjoy your break.

  8. Hi Beth! I have a lot coming up in March myself, so I'm taking a blog break too. It's not suicide? It's being filled, and being responsible to what God has given you.
    I pray that it will be a joyful and rejuvenating time for you and yours!! (And a Skype in there too)
    I love those images. You have a real flair for them.
    Blessings and Valentine Wishes,

  9. We'll miss you and your sweet words. Be blessed by the break and fill your cup with all kinds goodness!

  10. Oh Beth! I GET IT! Still drifting back and forth with the great blogging dilemma :) I know He will fill you up with all the good and sweet and savory moments of life! And I won't miss you because you better believe I am going to bug you during your respite ;) I love you and your words. God bless you, Sweet Lady!

  11. Thank you for coming by. I so love your comments and posts. I pray that this season will be more than you expect and bless everyone. I am thankful that you will be seeing your son as well.
    Beth, you are such a blessing to me.
    The photo of the bird on the post is my favorite and the inches of snow remind me on this 15th of February to remind you to STAY WARM!!!! We just got a norther down here and the heater is running away. But you are up in the COLD country and we are hot compared to you!!

  12. Beth, you are one of the people whom I believe listens VERY closely to the Lord. And if He's leading you to take a break, then He's got something very specific in mind. Even if it's just a time of rest and refreshment. This too, has purpose.

    And I'm also looking forward to one of your joy-filled moments in the next few weeks. I have a suspicion that it's going to bring ME great joy, too!!

    Love you, and GOD BLESS!

  13. Beth, You have a great blog and are a wonderful writer. Your readers will be here whenever you decide to return. We all need breaks once in a while to spend with family and to listen to the Lord. Blessings to you, friend.

  14. Beth,
    Praying your break is full of God- surprises and lots of good rest and time with your family and friends...((Hugs))

  15. Blessings to you on your blogging break, Beth. I pray that God will fill you up! Your words encourage me now because I've had my father visiting us the last week, and now today that I should catch up on writing a blog post, I am sick in bed with the flu! God has seasons for all of us. Love your facebook images.
